Nope. But there's plenty of places that they get their ass kicked! I've even heard that one got beaten to death right in the middle of town.

if you hit the cumberland lines you better keep going. read your bible. It plainly says adam and eve. not adam and steve. you weren't born this way as a bunch say. this is a decision you made yourself.

i have moved around a lot. from the north to the south every town has their so called cruising area/ gay hang out places. and u cant tell there is no gays in your town, wheather they are out or closet cases which a lot of small backwoods towns have. someone knows where these places are and it always comes out. just like ive not even moved there yet and i know there is a gay bar in the area (cookville) which by mapquest is like 30 miles away. so if you tell me there is no gay people there then the bar should not even exist because it takes more than a few people to keep that bar running

sure, there are gays, but they get the crap beat out of them. there was a video going around of a high school student who was beaten in the school hallway just for being gay. i guess if you want to take your chances, that's up to you.

listen gay guy sure there are "gays" in our area but they dont go to our bars in crossville they may live here but they stay well hidin if they go somewhere they run out there house with there faces hid jump into there prius and get on the interstate and go to cookeville they are very fround on in our comunity we have a southern baptist majority community and dont want our children to be subjected to your devilish ways so please do us a favor move somewhere else you are def not wanted here and will be subjected to a lot of laughing and finger pointing and yes it is true i know of a guy that went to prison for "hate crimes"because he beat two gays one died from complications but never made it out of the hospital and the other has to be spoon fed for the rest of his life and niether of them done anything except went to one of the bars in town so if you have any sense or wits to you at all you will seriuosly consider moving somewhere else this is not a threat but a warning of what is to come if you so choose to move here

your answer to this one is you may have been alot of places but you have never been up on this rock befor so you cant just think cause you seen one southern town you seen them all because you will get a real realization when cme to crossville we are all crazy imbread rockeatin mut@#r f@#$ers up here that really wouldnt care to go to prison for gay bashin besides there are to many mountains and to many sink holes for us to have to big of a chance of them recovering a body to make a case with any how look it up even paul harvey once said "if you want to get away with robery dont go to crossville tn but ifyou wanna get away with murde go to crossville" just some facts for you to consider

If cruising is what you seek, then seek it elsewhere for your own safety. Honestly, it's not quite as terrible as some make it out to be on here, but unfortunately, I'd take their advice.

Unfortunately, I've lived here since I was little, so there wasn't much of a choice in living situations, but it's not been completely negative. That goes for the younger generations, at least.

tl;dr, I'd be careful, but there are clubs in Cookeville.:D

For most of the others: Wtf, really? Read your own Bibles.

I'm sure this person has been ridiculed before for being gay and I think it's actually kind of hilarious people are warning against moving here so badly. As a gay resident, of course, you'll be teased, possibly pushed to your limits, but *most* people here will just subject you to verbal abuse and not physical abuse. Moving to a strict southern town I'm sure he's well aware to stay away from the straight bars here and knows clearly to not hit in any "good ole' boys."
And maybe, it WOULD be a better idea to go somewhere else besides Crossville...My advice; stick mainly to yourself or stay mostly in the Cookeville area.
But, to answer the original question, no. I'm pretty sure there's no gay "cruising" areas in Crossville.
I think "southern" pride should be changed to "southern person who gives friendly southerners who are accepting a bad name" pride.

takeit what you will im only making sugestions your better off to move somewhere else and "im not proud" the name explains it all i have pride in my heritage and your not proud of yours you also know the truth around here if you do live here you probily dont go to crossville much and if you do its during the day time and you dont go alone and even some who are accepting dont go with you in the day light take my advice move far far away while you still can or you too may be being judged befor the man him self sooner than you think and you know all this to be true dont you?

Don't listen to these bigots joe. It's such a sad thing to see people expressing their ignorance and backward ways.

If someone wishes to verbally assault you, then let them do it. Some get their rocks off by talking down to people and belittling them. It's what most would consider a lack of character.

If someone was to physically assault you for being gay, then in the same logic, the person doing the assaulting is the weaker one of society.

This world is changing. Whether people like it or not. Look at the African American race. It was once alright to beat, and abuse African Americans. Times changed, most didn't like it. However, now we have a diverse population where freedom has been opened for everyone. There are still those bigots, but in time it will be few and few.

And to "southern pride".. you would be surprised at the number of homosexuals that walk in and out of bars throughout this town. Are you really that naive? Let me guess, you go walking up to each and every person and ask them if their gay. Right? Please. Oh look ... see.... I can be a troll and sit on proxies as well....*rolls eyes*

I actually DO go into town quite a lot, thank you. And, I'm proud of who I am but don't let where I live define what I do or don't believe in. Believe it or not, some people have "southern pride" minus all the hatred and ignorance.:)

i've lived in an area most of my life that was a real bad place to be homosexual. what you said might be ur opinion but it isnt the truth. i was never once ridiculed.

ur just another bigot added to the small masses. get over it, seriously. its our freedom to live where we want. if that bothers you, then i suggest you leave the country and find a communist one. you enjoy your freedoms but dont want "certain" people to have theirs ........ isnt that just ironic?

"just for being gay"...NOT! he got his whooped b/c he was making "passes" at other boys and had been told many times to stop but continued with his "sexual harassment" on the other male students! get your facts straight!

Yes sure I would say go to the FFG (Fair Field Gay) community and strut your stuff, they say that place is welcomed to anyone.
